What No One Tells You About Positano

If you think of Italy and picturesque Italian towns, then you might be thinking about Positano. Situated on the Amalfi Coast, this charming little town is every traveler’s or Instagrammer’s dream come true. With a mild climate, a multitude of colorful houses stacked on a hill, one next to the other, and that laid-back holiday type of vibe, Positano is the perfect destination for a city break. But before booking your trip, you might want to consider these things that no one tells you about this charming town – as well as where to stay in Positano so that you get the best out of your trip!

Sicilian Day’s Cooking Class

There is nothing quite like Sicilian cuisine – it’s rich flavor, color and aroma will guide every nose to the doorstop of a traditional trattoria. As a Guatemalan chef, I knew little about the techniques involved in cooking this type of cuisine and was eager to learn. Throughout the four hour private cooking lesson with Patrizia and Giuliana from Sicilian Days, I learned to feel at home with this type of cuisine as we prepared it in their beautiful Sicilian loft overlooking the city streets.


Capitano Ago Luxury Yacht Excursion to Capri

If you’re looking for a taste of luxury while visiting the Amalfi Coast there is no better option than the Capitano Ago located in Sorrento’s Marina Grande. Capitano Ago provides sea-seekers an opportunity to experience the breath-taking ceralun blue waters.

There is only one way to truly take in the gorgeous waters of the Amalfi coast and the friendly staff from Amalfi Kayak can make it happen. Sneak away from the crowded tourist attractions by jumping into an Amalfi kayak! It’s a more intimate way to explore the beauty of the Italian Coastline, turquoise sea caves and beaches.
